  1. Oy! he was my menahel in fallsburg mesivta. He was strict on upholding yeshiva’s rules, and he also had a huge heart. I was once weak and in bed, being sick for a couple of days. Rabbi Spira came and brought me food and drink from his house…
    He enjoyed talking in learning with the bachurim, and was especially happy to say the shiur if a Rebbe wasn’t able to.
    His shalosh Seudos shmuzen were well prepared and inspiring. I remember some of them till today around 25 years later.
